Check out our pupils section on our website where we have posted some great pictures of the purple group children enjoying the sunshine whilst carrying out their outdoor learning!

Following the success of the ‘Let’s Play Programme’ over the holiday period we would like to share some of the ideas of playing outdoor with more of our parents.  We are conscious of not organising too many parental events so have decided to make a change to the PLP meeting and will run a session for parents and children on outdoor play instead, this will take place at 11.00am and 12.30pm.
